    I'm trying to find the easiest/most efficient way to make one of those fancy floating feedback tabs on the side of my websites/blogs.

    I'm sure we've all seen them by now.

    There's one on the left side of bukisa dot com

    Some companies make them - including setster and get satisfaction.

    I've seen them on people's pages with twitter followers and other things.

    I just want to learn how to implement one as a call to action.
    I want to be able to use a button I've created and have it link to any page I choose.

    Preferably the easiest way to do it on a wordpress blog since wordpress is what I use.

    Let me know if you know how to do this. Thank you

    I think this is quiet easy to do.


    The css:
    Code:
    a#feedback{display:block;position:fixed;top:200px;left:0;background:url("feedback.png") top left no-repeat;width:30px;height:120px;text-indent:-9999em}
    The HTML (add this before </body>)
    Code:
    <a id="feedback" title="Feedback" href="/feedback.php">Feedback</a>
    This will put your feedback tab on the left site. You can change everything by changing the css code.

    I hope this helps.

    If anyone else stumbles across this thread looking for an answer.

    I also recently found a very simple way to make a floating stationary tab on your website.

    pm me if you're looking for some help
